NASA celebrates Chandra X-Ray Observatory's 10th anniversary
Ten years ago, on July 23, 1999, NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory was launched aboard the space shuttle Columbia and deployed into orbit. View News Article (2009-07-24)

Swedish solar telescope bursts dream barrier
The first pictures from the new Swedish solar telescope on La Palma, Canary Islands, are presented in an article in the prestigious science journal Nature from November 14. The images of the sun are the most detailed ever seen. One of the most sensational discoveries is a previously unknown detailed sunspot structure. The impact of this discovery is now capturing the attention of solar... View News Article (2002-11-18)

Sussex University astronomer takes part in NASA mission
When NASA launches its new orbiting observatory this week, a University of Sussex astronomer will be looking at parts of the universe never seen before. Dr Sebastian Oliver is one of just a handful of UK scientists involved in the largest project for NASA's Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF), which leaves Cape Canaveral on Saturday, August 23. For the next nine months Dr Oliver will help... View News Article (2003-08-20)

Bringing astronomy into sharper focus
Scientists from the University of Cambridge's Astrophysics Group have today (21 June 2002) announced a collaboration with teams based in New Mexico, Puerto Rico and at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC to design, install and operate a novel type of astronomical telescope for ultra-high angular resolution observations of stars, galaxies and quasars. The agreement between researchers... View News Article (2002-06-21)

Construction materials for space stations
Antenna and telescope mirrors, walls and partitions for space stations, solar battery panels and even houses on the Moon and on Mars - all this can be achieved with technology developed by Russian scientists in the framework of ISTC projects 2835 and 2836. What is more, it can be achieved quickly, with good levels of strength and reliability, with minimal expense of time, space, energy and money. View News Article (2005-03-03)

Asteroid Hunting
A lot of attention has been paid in recent years to the asteroid threat issue. The International Asteroid Patrol has been set up to monitor the flight of potentially dangerous celestial rocks in visual diapason. However, the accuracy of optical methods for determining the trajectory leaves much to be desired. That accounts for inaccuracy of numerous forecasts predicting the date when the space...

Cool spacedust survey goes into orbit
University of Nottingham astronomers will be studying icy cosmic dust millions of light years away - using the biggest space telescope ever built. View News Article (2008-02-04)

NIST math technique opens clearer window on universe
A fast, efficient image enhancement technique developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and originally applied to improving monochrome microscope images has proved itself equally effective at the other end of the scale- sharpening details on color images of distant galaxies produced by the Hubble Space Telescope. View News Article (2006-12-11)

GLAST Safely in Orbit, Getting Check-ups
Less than a week after launch, NASA's Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope, or GLAST, is safely up-and-running well in orbit approximately 350 miles (565 kilometers) above Earth's surface. View News Article (2008-06-20)

Space shield could help image Earth-like planets, says study
A gigantic, daisy-shaped space shield could be used to block out pesky starlight and allow astronomers using an orbiting telescope to zero in on Earth-like planets in other solar systems. View News Article (2006-07-06)
